Patna,(BiharTimes): When Nitish Kumar’s cavalcade was attacked at Narbatpur village in Buxar district on Wednesday a section of media dismissed it by stating that it was the handiwork of Yadav caste, even though it was people’s protest against the poor water and power supply and bad condition of roads. It was also said that Buxar is represented in Lok Sabha by Jagdanand Singh, a senior RJD leader.
But on Thursday during the same Seva Yatra the Bihar chief minister had to face a different type of protest. It came from an unexpected quarters.
While he was holding a Janata Darbar a group of youths belonging to Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, the students’ wing of Sangh Parivar, raised slogans like Nitish Kumar murdabad (Down with Nitish Kumar) and Muslim appeasement bandh karo (stop appeasement of the Muslims).
Incidentally, Minister of Art and Culture Sukhda Pandey, of the BJP, was present with Nitish at the time. Both she and Nitish remained mum.
Director General of Police (DGP) Abhayanand, who was accompanying the chief minister, directed the deputy superintendent of police of Buxar Sadar and other police officials to keep out the protesters. They were thus removed from the scene.
The protest was symbolic and had the blessing of the RSS, which is keeping a close watch on Bihar chief minister. Incidentally, it was organized at the time when all the top BJP leaders––deputy CM, Sushil Kumar Modi, state party chief, Dr C P Thakur, state NDA convener and road construction minister, Nand Kishore Yadav and health minister Ashwini Kumar Choubey––were away to Mumbai to attend the national executive of the party.
It came only a few days after the state health minister, Ashwini Kumar Choubey, while addressing a function organized by Biharis in Surat, declared that the Gujarat chief minister, Narendra Modi, is the prime ministerial choice of the people of Bihar.
His remarks were strongly criticized by the state Janata Dal (United) leaders.
On Thursday too Janata Dal (United) spokesman, Sanjay Singh, said it is unfortunate that the ABVP workers shouted slogans against the chief minister. His party would ask Nitishji to take strong action against the ABVP workers who were involved in the incident.
Though the ABVP workers had in the past opposed several steps of the Nitish Kumar government, for example, allocation of land for AMU in Kishanganj instead of Katihar, the Thursday incident is likely to have greater political ramifications.
The growing distrust
Opportunists can't keep on bluffing people for long.The skeleton of tactical democracy (Nitishocracy) is out of the closet and people are seeing the hidden side of the impostor.The little resistance shown by the brave villagers of Buxar has revealed the vulnerability of the dictator followed by the long hidden crack in the NDA cartel.Despite desperate media management the cat is out of the bag.The brutal regime is fast moving towards it's destined doom.It's only a matter of months when the patrons of corruption will face a broad-day-light music and their pre-paid propagandists won't be able to help them scape unpunished.For Nitish and his lackeys the clock is ticking with every section of the poor society of Bihar reaching its boiling point.The worst bunch of weapon wielded men called the police who instead of ensuring the safety of civilians are lining up for licking the boot of their masters in political roadshows are well aware of the fact that they have lost their credibility far too long and are considered the most avoidable creatures everywhere.They must take lessons from the way the disgruntled masses are treating them the world around.Hope what is happening in Nigeria, Afghanistan and Iraq does not happen in Bihar !
